My family and I had an amazing time at this beautiful sanctuary. Stunning Views. Lovely House. And absolutely the best hosts. You gotta play archery. Loads of fun!  We will be back!

B-day celebration for 4 couples!

We rented the entire Lodge at Blue Sky Ranch for a 50th birthday celebration for 4 couples.  The property was amazing with plenty of room and every amenity we needed.  We all had our own space but spent most of our time together outdoors on the expansive decks and patio- ALL with stellar views.  The hot tubs were clean and perfect for after a long hike or bike ride. Jennifer & Kevin were great hosts and promptly attended to our needs.  Kitchen had all we needed to cook in a few nights and enjoy breakfast together each morning. Highlights were the gaggle of hummingbirds that visited every day, the sunset hike that ended with a wine and cheese spread with a gorgeous view (sign up for this with the host) and side trips into Nederland and Boulder.  We all kept remarking how beautiful and relaxing the ranch was.  We'd definitely visit again...there would have been room for 4-6 kiddos to joins us, but this time it was adults only.  Next time we'll bring them with us!

Amazing Vistas!

Incredible home and land with amazing vistas!  Ideal place to enjoy time with family, friend and nature.  It really doesn't get much better than Blue Sky Mountain Ranch.
This was one of the best vacations we’ve ever taken. The camper was modern and spotless. Kevin did everything he could to make us feel at home. The location is extremely secluded with beautiful views. The property is very far away from the road and the only noises are the chirping of birds. Kevin was in touch regularly with lots of great tips about local activities and restaurants. We plan on returning.

My girlfriend and I booked this place for 3 nights at first, but once we got there, mesmerized by the place, we just had to extend our stay to 4 nights.  The pictures don't justify how beautiful and refreshing this place is.  The RV had everything we needed and the hosts were very nice people and made our stay as comfortable as possible.  We will be back for sure!

Kevin & Jen's place was incredible!  It was a beautiful home inside and out and really allowed us to privately enjoy our time in the mountains.  The views from the house are breathtaking and the house has so much character and just the most warm and welcoming feeling.  Kevin & Jen were awesome too, they were always available and gave us multiple suggestions of places to go and thing to go do when we asked.  The hiking trails around the house were conveniently located for us to enjoy whenever we wanted to as soon as we stepped out of the house.  It was overall the perfect location for a secluded and romantic time and we'd definitely love to visit again in the future.

We planned a simple trip not far out of the city and were thrilled to find the ranch. One hour out of Denver and you feel a world away.  Gorgeous views, lovely accommodations and fun activities.  The house is wonderful, nicer than the photos.  Warm and comfortable...homey.  Everything you need is there and if you by chance need something Kevin and Jennifer are so helpful and the most gracious hosts.  The artwork throught the house is spectacular.  I spent the first hour walking around and enjoying the objects throught out the house.  We will absolutely return once again to unwind and rejuvenate at the ranch.  Thank you K&J!

My fiance and I were blown away by these accommodations.  The views are indescribably beautiful.  Kevin & Jennifer were such attentive and considerate hosts. They made sure to provide us with tips that were personalized for our trip goals. We loved every moment of our stay, but one of the highlights was learning how to ride ATVs with Kevin.  We recommend taking advantage of this amenity!

I had my bachelor party with 12 of us guys and had an incredible weekend.  We shot arrows, played cornhole, hung out in the hot tub, hiked all around the massive property, and enjoyed amazing views from the deck.  The house is also about a 20 minute drive to large strip of casinos if you're looking for a little gambling. One of a kind experience and would love to return in the future

The views are unbelievable and the property is lovingly maintained and offers plenty of room to hike and explore, and it was great to come back for a relaxing soak in the hot tub afterwards. The bed was super comfy too!

Never had a better experience.  Truly respectful of our privacy and willing to extend any assistance needed.  I would go back again and again!  Thank you Kevin & Jennifer!  You made our trip one of the most memorable experiences.  Couldn't have asked for a better view, location or amenites!

Our Group of 12 guys had a fantastic time.  We spent days hiking around this beautiful property and enjoyed the spectacular views off the deck.  Used the ample kitchen space and Green Egg to whip up delicious meals.  Bedrooms easily accommodated all 12 of us. Kevin & Jennifer were very good about providing extensive details on all parts of the property/house.  Would definitely go for a repeat stay the next time I have a group activity in the area.

Extra special touches inside the home as far as amenities & snacks.  Friendly accommodation and we felt very cared for during our stay.  They made sure we were warm and the the roads were plowed for safe travel when we need to to leave. Wonderful hosts, but even more magical views!!

Perfect place to get away up in the mountains and not be next door to 20 other cabins! The indoor hot tub was great!  The cabin is the perfect quiet getaway that's less than an hour away from the city.  We would love to stay again this coming summer!

Cozy & spacious at the same time.  The views are literally out of this world and after spending 2 nights we genuinely didn't want to leave.  Kevin & Jennifer were so welcoming and helpful that they felt more like old friends than anything else.  I will happily be recommending this place to my family and friends and we hope to stay here on our next trip to Colorado.  I cannot imagine a better place to experience the beauty that Colorado has to offer.  We'll never forget the time we spent here!!

We had a romantic winter honeymoon at Blue Sky Ranch's Romantic Cabin.  It's huge with great amenties, feels like a luxurious camping experience.  Hosts were very friendly and instantly replied to all our queries while we were there.  The Cabin is located adjacent to Roosevelt National Forest.  You'll have access to more than 50 acres of forest (with the Romantic Cabin accommodation) when you book your stay.  It's better than a winter resort as you can enjoy the expansive mountain views in seclusion.  We spent most of our time hiking the trails and exploring the mountains in the wilderness.  There's an indoor & outdoor hot tub to relax and enjoy the sunset after a long day of hiking.  Hosts arranged a fun scavenger hunt in the woods with a campfire and champagne at the end of it.  It's also close to ski resorts.

The View from the house is beyond description!

Stay Date: November 12th, 2017 at The Romantic Cabin
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We had privacy and space to just be together.  The view from the house is beyond description. There were several times that we thought of going out for an activity and just decided to stay in and enjoy the space and the time together.  I am so thankful that we found this location and that is was available during the time we were able to get away.  If you are looking for a secluded, romantic, peaceful getaway, please consider this location!  We are going to recommend it to all of our friends.  It is one of those things that you will try to describe the view from the deck or even show someone a photo, but the photo just won't do it justice.  They will come and see it for themselves and say "Wow, you do have to see this in person!" We are excited to bring our 4 kids with us next time that we come to Colorado, as we want them to be here to enjoy this place as well.  Many times as we were by the hot tub, or looking at all of the space to explore, we said how much our kids would love this place!  I guess from my post you will conclude that we give Blue Sky Mountain Ranch a 5 star rating.  We will be back!

Perfect Anniversary!

Stay Date: October 27th, 2017 at The Romantic Cabin
My wife and I are sitting in the airport getting ready to fly home from a beautiful anniversary weekend spent at Kevin & Jennifer's master suite romantic cabin and we still just can't get over how beautiful the property is.  Secluded, but still only about 10 mins from restaurants and a grocery store, it has gorgeous views from every room in the house.  They have 2 hot tubs that look out on the mountains-one indoor and one outdoor and they were well maintained and the perfect temperature. Inside the house was well decorated and very comfortable.  Kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals and the bedroom has giant picture windows looking out onto the mountain range.  We spent part of Saturday hiking almost all the trails on the prooperty and each lookout point gave us a different perspective each time.  Kevin & Jennifer offer many opportunities to never get bored-hiking, archery, mountain biking, atv's, volleyball, the list goes on.  They were both so kind and helpful in pointing out things to do, places to go etc.  They were wonderfully helpful throughout and always quick to answer our questions or help whenever we needed anything.  We could not have had a better experience at a more lovely property.  Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Squirrel's Nest for 5 nights.  The view was amazing, the luxury RV, clean and very comfortable.  While the temperatures dipped in the evenings, we were never cold.  Kevin & Jennifer were a call away if we needed anything, and they checked in occassionally to ensure we were good.  We would absolutely stay again at this beautiful location.  Great hosts!

5 Star Remote Paradise with one of a kind activities!

We recently stayed at Blue Sky Mountain Ranch for a friends reunion with 10 guests!  The property, vistas, rock formations, forest trails and activities were truly amazing.  The cabin has all the luxuries one would expect for the rental fees, with expansive decks, two hot tubs, fire pits, satellite TV/Big screen, stocked kitchen and comfy beds.  We were constantly surprised by the attention to detail and friendly guidance provided by Kevin & Jennifer (owners).  The entire property appeared to be a manicured forest with thousands of boulder formations placed just for us on our many hikes and explorations.  The local shops and great restaurants are all within 10-20 mins drive.  We golfed, gambled (Black Hawk Casinos are maybe 20 mins drive), hiked, and held an unforgettable skeet competion onsite.  Kevin was kind enough to let us shoot off the back deck into an incredible vista of the snow topped mountains and yellow Aspen trees.  We've traveled all over the world to many properties and this ranch was the most unique experience yet.  Renter's note: drink lots of water before and during your stay!  Sounds funny but our group has some very experienced/fit hikers and everyone noticed the altitude change the first few days.  In having the time of our lives in these mountains, we cannot wait for the chance to get back to Blue Sky Mountain Ranch for another reunion.  Thanks again Kevin & Jen!  The Meese Party.

Amazing place in the middle of nowhere, yet only 10 minutes from town.  The pictures don't do the view justice.  The hosts were very responsive and kept their distance.  I would highly recommend this place for someone looking to get out of hotel rooms without losing all the amenities that comes with camping.

This is a beautiful people property with attentive owners. We enjoyed the birds SO much.  The hummingbird feeder was filled daily.  Tom even got a new supply of sugar just for their sugar water.  We are still glowing with memories of our visit to the ranch.. We had such a lovely time, thank you!

Our group of nine friends came together from across the country to reconnect and enjoy time together. The setting was perfect. Blue Sky Ranch is a great property. It's easy to get to, well appointed, and yet away from it all. We mostly spent our time at the home, but ventured out for some hiking near Nederland too. Really enjoyed the kitchen, the deck, and the firepit. Thanks to the owners for setting us up and giving us some helpful tips during our stay.

Our trip was nothing short of amazing. The house and property exceeded the expectations we had after seeing the posting on AirBnB. Kevin went above and beyond as a host including driving into town and picking up extra supplies for us and taking us on an amazing hike around the property. Highly recommend. Thank you again Kevin.

Heaven in the Mountains!

Stay Date: October 1st, 2016 at The Lodge
This place is heaven in the mountains. If you're looking for seclusion with one of the better views in the country, than this is your place. The house is as big as advertised. We celebrated a bachelor party of 14 and we slept comfortably. The rock peak next to the house is a must for sunsets and group photos. Exploring the 120 acres is highly encouraged, but you may be just as content to sit on the porch and soak in the view. 2 hot tubs, plenty of bathrooms and a sizable kitchen helped make Blue Sky Ranch feel like home for our entire crew. Host is a phone call away if anything is needed. Important things to remember: buy all food, beer, and dispensary items before you arrive. Also, don't forget charcoal and watch a video or two on how to operate a Green Egg. It'll be worth your while. Everyone in our party would go back in a heartbeat and I'm sure you will too once you've experienced the Blue Sky Ranch.

Kevin did a great job in all areas. He greeted us upon arrival and showed us around the home and property. The home and property is like staying at a very nice resort. The home is welled stocked with just about everything you need. There is plenty to do without ever leaving the property [hiking-mountain biking, ATV, volleyball, archery,looking out on the deck at the views, relaxing!!!] We gathered our family for a getaway weekend and had a great time!!! Everyone in our family enjoyed themselves. Looking forward to returning soon!!!

Phenomenal Vacation!

Stay Date: August 15th, 2016 at The Lodge
From the very begining of booking this amazing home I knew it was going to be a fantastic trip!!! I planned the trip to get my four grown children together from all different cities, needless to say it was complicated, with everyone arriving and leaving at different time. Kevin and Jennifer embraced my situation, and helped plan almost every activity we did, which changed often. From massages to hikes to wine and cheese set up on a lookout for all of us. They don't miss anything. I've used Airbnb many, many times. I have never recieved so much help, and such a welcoming host. That's just a start, I havn't mentioned the home and the property yet. SPECTACULAR……and that doesn't even do it justice. The views are breath taking, the property is endless, with designated trails and tons of "look outs". The home is so comfortable and inviting and gave my whole family a relaxed yet efficient place to gather, cook and play games. Kevin and Jennifer were completely available if we needed anything. We hope to go back every year!!! Phenomenal vacation! Run don't walk!!

I can truly not say enough about Kevin and Jennifer. What they have created on their property in Black Hawk is something truly spectacular. 14 of us from all over the US came together in Denver for a friends bachelor party and we stayed at Blue Sky for four days. When I say that we did not leave the property for the entire trip I mean we literally did not leave and had no reason to. The house is spectacular, the views are breathtaking and there are endless things to do. We played cornhole, volleyball, went mountain biking, hiking, shot arrows and shot guns and that was just the first morning! Kevin and Jennifer were available through out our stay for anything that we needed and the house was fully stocked with towels, two hot tubs, great grilling supplies etc. The crew had such a great time, we are ready to book our next stay and I could easily see my family bringing others for a long weekend as well. The drive from Denver and Boulder is easy and you are truly above the clouds at the ranch. This is a must if you are considering a group get together. Do not miss this place!

What an incredible relaxing vacation away from home.  Kevin & team were very accommodating to our group during our stay. We were greeted by Renata who showed us around the grounds and made sure we had everything (and more) than we needed. Kevin & team were also kind enough to offer us a delicious welcoming Coffee-Toffee Cake that made the introduction to Blue Sky Mountain Ranch even more warming. As advertised, the Ranch has plenty to offer making it an exceptional retreat for many to enjoy.  Surrounded by gorgeous wall to wall views, Blue Sky Mountain ranch offers amazing sunrise/sunset views of BlackHawk, Co. We cannot say enough about our experience and hope to visit again soon. Thank you for making our trip one to remember!
